When a make up artist on the Nars counter recommended me this Limited Edition Tahiti Bronzer and mini Ika brush for an amazing price of £39 I really couldn’t say no! I was dubious at first as to whether I had been conned, but I am so pleased with my purchase! The original bronzer alone usually costs £27.50, and the full-sized Ika brush costs £43, so you’re saving an amazing £31.50.
First, as you can see above, you get 2g more product than the original bronzer (a winning situation all around!). This doesn’t sound a lot, but it really will make a difference, especially as it lasts so long. I originally purchased my old bronzer over two years ago, so it really is worth investing in. Even better, having that extra bit of product in the new palette means I’ll be saved another splurge for even longer!
I love the colour of this bronzer, as gives a gorgeous glow without being too overpowering. I originally saw this bronzer being used by the amazing beauty blogger Tanya Burr, and I am so glad I followed her advice. I like to lightly dust a covering all over my face to give a lovely healthy glow. With the handy contouring brush, I also make an effort to subtly define my cheekbones. It really is a great product for extenuating natural beauty by enhancing the look of a natural tan!
The mini Ika contour brush is amazingly soft, and makes it so easy to create delicately defined cheekbones. The loose hair bristles pick up less product than a denser brush, so distributes the product onto your skin really evenly, giving a lovely coverage. As well as this, there’s a really useful mirror in the compact, which makes it perfect for popping in your bag for touch ups throughout the day.
My only issue with this bronzer is that the packaging is much bigger than my old bronzer. I do love that the contour brush sits nicely inside, but as one of the larger items in my make up bag now, it takes up a lot more room!
(Quite a big difference in size!!)
If you haven’t tried this bronzer before, I would really recommend going to a Nars counter to test it out, you definitely won’t regret it!
